Artist: Recycled Sounds
Percussion with Recycled Materials!
Program Description: This performance and workshop program, by renowned percussionist Dendê Macêdo, uses instruments he made from found materials to deliver a message about protecting our environment through reuse and recycling.
Length of Program: 45-60 Minutes
Venue Requirements: As a performance program, all that is needed is an electrical outlet. The artist travels with all of his own equipment. It is also possible to book this as a workshop program where the artist teaches the group how to make instruments out of recycled materials. For this, the venue would need to provide a recycled material for each participant (empty water bottle, soda can, toilet paper roll) as well as art supplies for decorating.
